Purpose and goal

Evaluate whether a completely new optical technology can be used to measure the quality of raw water / drinking water by detect/identify organic/suspended materials by depolarization of light.

Expected results and effects

The development of a simple technical solution that enables quick identification of potential problems at the consumer. The purpose of the project is to use a whole new technology for the industry and to develop a simple and reliable measuring instruments to ensure water quality in the distribution network.

Planned approach and implementation

Identification of the type of organic and inorganic material intended to be detected on the basis of known techniques. Identification of necessary technical performance such as wavelength, bandwidth, measurement gap to detect the test material. Sample planning with identification of reference equipment and appropriate fields and lab tests as well as processing and reporting of measurement data.
